The glorious spring and start to summer we have been enjoying this year has provided perfect conditions for tomato plants I am proudly growing from seed. There are huge crops of ‘chocolate cherry’ and ‘sweet million’ tomatoes developing in my greenhouse and fortunately the plants have not yet suffered any of the usual tomato problems.
Maybe it’s because I have this little friend who moved in to make his/her home in the corner of one of my tomato growbags a couple of months ago and seems in no rush to leave! Thankfully, ‘toady’ is probably keeping the insect population at bay and I haven’t seen a slug in the greenhouse since he’s been there. He pops out to greet me when I water my crops and I’m sure he recognises my voice! Then again…..maybe not. Cute though!
